I immediately warmed to Vassiliki which inspired a great deal of confidence. I found her to be really pleasant, obviously very knowledgeable and exceptionally capable of explaining her thoughts and future plans. I would have no doubts whatsoever in recommending her as an excellent and approachable doctor.
